LaGrange, GA - The Wesleyan College soccer team defeated LaGrange College 2-0 on Saturday afternoon to push their 2016 record to 3-0 (1-0 USA South), which marks the best start for the program in school history and the school's first ever USA South victory. Junior Jessica Austell and freshman Whitney Flanter each scored their first career goal during the match.
"After a lot of thought and practice, we changed things up and came out with a completely different game plan today," remarked head coach Paige Hightower. "This team brought a ton of heart and grit to the field and stuck to the game plan for the entire 90 minutes. This was a huge win for us given our history with LaGrange. We've played so many close matches with them and just haven't been able to come away with the win, but today we were finally able to come out on top."
"I really felt that everyone on the field played well and contributed, but Carlee Dykes played an excellent match in goal and really had our backs all day. We gave up too many corner kicks and free kicks, but she was solid in goal and made a couple of outstanding saves to keep us on top."
